I was wondering how you guys record the songs you play. Is there a good, download able program you use to record it?

If so, and if it's easily download able could someone send me a link?



I'm learning Black Dog by Led Zeppelin, I'll probably have it done (solo is what I'm doing now) in a few days and I wanted to record it.

This man speaks the truth.
Make sure you download version 1.3 of Audacity. It is better than the others in my opinion.

yes it would, but don't expect the best quality. should be good enough to get the idea down though, no doubt.

Yeah, Beta.
And yes, your mic should work if it plugs into your computer.
I use a little crappy 5 dollar microphone. It works. It makes the guitars sound like paper (example on my profile), but it works. Im saving up for a better mic.

So you plug the guitar into the computer to record it? Or can you use the amp and a mic to record it..?

Yeah. I really want one of those, but I am finding it amazingly hard to get into the workforce, and I don't have the money to go out and spend it right now.

i plug it into the amp, the amp has an auxiliary output for headphones, so i hook a cord between that and the mic jack. you can find a 1/4" to 1/8" converter at any Radioshack

Would that mess up the amp? I did that once and now the only sound the amp makes is a humming sound.
